INEC Postpones All Bye-Elections

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has postponed the 15 bye-elections in 11 states across the country.

INEC spokesman, Festus Okoye made the announcement said the 15 bye-elections was postponed due to the current crisis in the country.

The elections for six senatorial districts and nine state constituencies are rescheduled to take place on October 31.

The INEC commissioner disclosed that the decision was taken after a meeting with all the resident electoral commissioners (RECs).

“This decision is in compliance with Section 26 (2) of the Electoral Act 2010 (as amended), which gives the Commission the power to postpone an election if there is reason to believe that a serious breach of the peace is likely to occur if the election is proceeded with on that date, or that it is impossible to conduct the elections as a result of natural disasters or other emergencies.

“The Commission will continue to monitor the situation in all the States and Constituencies, consult with relevant Stakeholders and meet again in two weeks to review the situation and decide on a feasible date for the elections.

“The Commission appeals for calm and understanding of the stakeholders and voters in the States where elections were scheduled. The safety of the voters, election officials and other stakeholders is paramount to the Commission in conducting elections.” Okoye said.
